Evening Standard: "All change at King's Cross"

Link to Evening Standard

"John McAslan uses a modest architectural cliché to describe the new concourse he has designed at King’s Cross Station, which opens to the public next Monday, after the Mayor cut the ceremonial red tape [last night]. 'We were trying to stitch together things that were disconnected,' he says, as if he’s just finished darning a sock.

"But the 15-year, £400 million project he has masterminded at King’s Cross Station is more than stitching. It is a fundamental reconstruction of one of the thorniest logistical and architectural problems in London, one that has had an array of architects scratching their heads for a generation."
